3.2 million children have been affected by the crisis inside South Sudan

Children have been killed, injured, displaced and abducted by both sides to the conflict. The nutrition situation remains critical in most parts of South Sudan. In several places children are just one step away from famine.

The future generation of children in South Sudan is in danger

Violence and displacement, together with impacts of extreme weather, continue to threaten a generation of children.

Since the conflict started almost three years ago, more than 400,000 children have been forced out of school and 17,000 are reported as being used by armed group in the conflict. Children have been separated from their families and are increasingly vulnerable to violence and sexual abuse.

How will my donation help children?

Unicef staff are on the ground in right now, delivering life-saving essentials like food and clean water, as well as protecting children from abuse and exploitation. We’re also working hard to keep children safe and reunite them with their families.  In 2015, we helped treat more than 130,000 children for severe malnutrition, and provided critical psychosocial support to more than 365,000 children affected by the crisis.

But we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child and the situation is getting worse every day. Your donation can help children in South Sudan who need it most.

You can help us reach more children in South Sudan. Please donate now.

For the first 12 months monthly donations made to this appeal will go to children affected by the South Sudan conflict. After that they will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, helping children caught in wars and disasters around the world. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed Unicef’s funding requirements for this appeal, your one off or monthly gift will also go to Unicef’s Children’s Emergency Fund.
